This USB audio recorder is one of our most popular products, so we are pleased to announce a firmware update, that will improve its performance even more! As you know, the recorder already has a superior battery life for its size, a convenient sound activation mode, and good sound quality. Here is a summary of the new upgrades:
- Adjustable Sound Activation - This determines how loud the sound has to be before the recorder starts recording. You choose the level. Lower sensitivity level will result in longer battery life, but the very queitest of sounds may not be recorded. Higher sensitivity will miss nothing, but you may record a lot of "dead air" that you don't need.
- Adjustable Record Quality - Although the default quality has always been high enough to please our customers, there is now a second, even HIGHER quality setting to choose from. The cost of using the higher quality is a reduced battery life and larger file size, which means the total memory will be used up faster.
- Setup Software - There is a new program that allows you to adjust all the settings mentioned above. In addition to activation and quality, you can also adjust the time and date. Setting the correct time and date makes it easier to organize your files, especially if you have multiple recordings spread over several days, which often happens with the sound activation feature.
Unfortunately the setup software only works in Windows not Mac. This software is only used for changing recorder settings so you can still record and play back your files without Windows.
